I need a little guidance to see if I still have any prayer of going to UMB. Any helpful tips or anything would be so appreciated.
I failed my MA180 (Pre-Calculus) class last semester. Incidentally, I'm really depressed and afraid that it could be a deal breaker for me getting in.
It really sucks because I've gotten good grades before and even though I failed a 4 credit class, I have a 3.1 GPA which is still above the minimum.
I guess my question comes down to this: Is it forgivable that I failed this class because it was not the required class I needed (I needed MA110 and Stats)? It was honestly down to poor advising and a teacher that I had trouble understanding.
I'm now taking MA110 and I'm doing really well (my first quiz I got a 18/15 since there was an extra credit problem and also have been getting EC by correcting mistakes on the bored).
I expect to raise my GPA to a 3.34 by the end of the semester and hopefully more in my final two semesters before applying.
Also, I am getting experience as a GNA, which I would hope would give me some benefit in going to UMB.
Should I retake Pre-calc?? Or should I just work on getting A's in 110 and Stats to make up for it? I heard that even if you retake a class UMB will average both classes grades instead of taking the higher grade, is this true?
I'm so sad about this... I really want to be a nurse someday. I know I would be great at it.
